I was surprised to see how poorly I performed on the SC and CR. I always felt SC was my strong point and CR was my weak point (but not 44th percentile weak). I'm retaking the test in about a month.

I had taken 6 Manhattan Prep CATs and 2 GMAT prep software CATs and scored between 34 and 40 on Verbal.

My prep (for Verbal) included all of the Magoosh content, reading the Economist/WSJ/Washington Post every day for at least 30 minutes, and completing all OG 2017 and OG 2017 Verbal Supplement questions (with thorough review of incorrect answers). I think I need to focus more on meaning and less on grammar for SC. For CR, I don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciative.

Some notes on my ESR:

I never ran out of time and did not feel I ever had to "guess" on anything (even the last few questions).

Time management for my 2nd quarter of questions in Verbal states I spent 3:20 on incorrect questions, but I only got 2 wrong and it could very well have been the first RC question of a passage (I got two RCs in that question period). So I don't consider that to be an issue especially since my "incorrect" timing was in line with my correct timing for the other 3 quarters.

Often people overestimate their ability in a certain section but in reality they're actually not as good as they might estimate. You have to put in the work, you might already have a good baseline for CR & SC but you will need to know what the test is asking for and what each type of question is asking for.

Best of luck! Kudos if it helps
